Entry and funding requirements
Candidates should have, or expect to obtain, a first or upper-second class degree, or international equivalent, in either pharmacy, chemistry, engineering, physics, biology, mathematics or related sciences, or a relevant master’s qualification.
Studentships are based at UCL and UoN. Awards for UK residents cover tuition fees and provide a stipend at the UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) rate. UCL students will receive an additional allowance to reflect the higher costs of living in London.
International applicants are welcome to apply for the CDT. Both UoN and UCL have set aside funding to support outstanding scholars from around the world and ensure that they can join the CDT and receive all the same benefits as UK residents.
If you are unsure whether you have UK or International student status, the UK Council for International Student Affairs (UKCISA) can help you assess your fee status.
Studentships are based in Ireland and are open to UK, EU and non-EU students. Funding will cover EU fees only and a stipend in one of the following universities: Trinity College Dublin, University College Cork or University College Dublin.
